This is in my humble opinion, a fairly good stout. Kirin Stout (キリン一番搾りスタウト), ABV. 5% (barley, hops). It is also one of the most reasonably priced beers here in Japan at about ¥180 ~ ¥210 depending on where one can get it. Advice: it's always cheaper at large supermarkets if they carry it. Colour: tar. Head: light brown. Smell: stoutly ;) and Palate: not too sweet as some stouts can be. Softly bitter but from roasted barley. Aftertaste: at first, none, but then a soft beer sourness. Not bad at all. Note: this beer can come off as a little heavy, so isn't usually paired with food. It is one that I continually like to drink since it's a pretty good brew and one really gets a good bang for their yen! #beer#japanesebeer#kirin#kirinbeer#kirinstout#キリン一番搾りスタウト#日本ビール#stout#beerstagram
Hey all. At the suggestion of one old friend, I've started another account - this time showcasing different Japanese beers, both good and bad. I am no sommelier but just an average guy who enjoys having a beer to relax from time to time. Japan has its own unique beers - some really well brewed ones, and some that are well, club soda with yellow no.5 dye added... Ranges are from lagers and pilsners, to ales and stouts and others. So as to take one for the team, I'll sometimes share 'happoshū 発泡酒' and other low-malt beers... annnnd drinks that shouldn't be drunk (third tier drinks) - the kind that no self-respecting human being should enjoy. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my critiques from time to time! #japanesebeer#beer#日本ビール#ビール#lager#pilsner#ale#stout#beerstagram#japan#kanpai#乾杯 .
